Black Ambient of the highest order. Italy’s Clavicvla channels the cosmic void, the source and finality of all things manifest. A true sonic force that reverberates through the core, allowing to escape one’s physical form and delve deep without, where logic and comprehensions are null…
Sentient Ruin and Cyclic Law are honored to delve once again into the otherworldy wretched dimension of Clavicvla, as we proudly prepare the release of Ittiel’s sophomore LP for a November 1 2019 release on tape, vinyl, digital and CD for North America and Europe.
Diabolical black ambient/death industrial demon Claviclva returns with his blood-chilling sophomore LP Sepulchral Blessing, unravelling another forty minutes of tyrannical nightmare fuel that will leave the listener catatonic and agonizing in horror. With Sepulchral Blessing this time Clavicvla constructs a sonic tomb of immense evocative force that inters the listener into a lucid nightmare and transports them straight into the kingdom of the dead, acting as an abominable sonic vessel to the underworld. Unbelievably repulsive, blood-chillingly horrific and unyieldingly evil, on this astonishing new work sole mastermind Ittiel has harnessed the quintessence of malignity and created a cinematic soundtrack to a ghastly decent into the underworld, where diabolical atmospheres drenched in the stench of death, nightmarish soundscapes, and monstrous drones and sub-bass frequencies are masterfully interwoven and manipulated to envelop, entrance, and entomb the listener into the nethermost pits of hell.
Leading up to the release two tracks have been unveiled, one at Brutal Resonance, and one at Blessed Altar Zine. Both outlets have remarked on the superb quality of Ittiel’s infernal art stating that his “cosmos oriented lectures on the twisted and turned beings of the outer worlds have a penchant for otherworldly and omnipotent beings, the project’s occult following has only been growing” – and that the music “goes deep into the mind of the listener, infecting it with a primal fear down to its very core”.
Conceived by Italian black metal artist Ittiel, unholy dark ambient / death industrial abomination Clavicvla represents the artist’s moral, spiritual, corporal, and human dissolution, and his transition from his initial artistic earthly form into immaterial and full-fledged abstract horror, to mirror the newly acquired reflection of himself – the transition itself triggered by Ittiel’s morbid and sanity-defying fascination with satanism, acosmism, and the cult of death. Clavicvla as such was formed as a ritual vessel, to disintegrate and transition Ittiel’s physical existence itself from the corporal world to pure dread and emptiness. Ittiel has stated that he puts together the sounds of Clavicvla to dismantle and annihilate his corporal self in an attempt to embrace, and become one with, the absolute void, and break the endless loop of life and death by instead derailing existence into senseless chaos and entropy. As such Clavicvla is for Ittiel liberation of consciousness, to assume his true and perceived form, bound by nothing and shaped solely by his own unbeing.
Sepulchral Blessing drops on November 1 2019 on digital, tape and EU vinyl through Sentient Ruin, and on CD, digital and EU vinyl from Cyclic Law.
